No hard feelings between Lionel Messi and Chris Smalling

Cristiano Ronaldo

Valverde fielded an nearly unrecognizable starting 11 on Saturday in a 0-0 draw at Huesca, the Spanish league's bottom team.

The price was two points dropped and Atletico capitalised, beating Celta Vigo 2-0 thanks to a thundering Antoine Griezmann free-kick and a cool finish from Alvaro Morata.

"We want to try to finish the league well and win all the games we have left, for our pride and our fans", Griezmann said. "It's normal that now we have to reach a Champions [League] semi-final, which is another competition in which Juventus is playing against a great team".

"When he starts moving wide and doesn't attack the goal as much, that means it's time to take him off the field". They have a little advantage.

Messi had his nose bloodied when he was hit in the face by United defender Chris Smalling during Barcelona's 1-0 Champions League win at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

And data crunchers at Fivethirtyeight which grades each team's defensive and offensive capabilities while looking at round-by-round probabilities says Juventus has a mere 9% chance of progressing all the way to the Champions League trophy on June 1 at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid.

Brazilian forward Malcom struck the post early in the second half and team mate Carles Alena missed the target from the rebound in Barca's best spell after the interval, while substitutes Philippe Coutinho, Jordi Alba and Arthur Melo could not improve the leaders' attacking threat when they came on. Ernesto Valverde's side was composed of a mostly younger crowd of players and the occasional more experienced one, with Dembélé coming back from his resting time to prove he's ready for the UCL clash next week. Their survival bid remains unlikely but alive.

Udinese remained four points above the bottom three.

Moussa Wague and Jean-Clair Todibo made their debuts for the Catalans, while Riqui Puig and Jeison Murillo earned first league performances, with Kevin-Prince Boateng given a run-out and Ousmane Dembele granted a full hour as he works his way back to full fitness.

Huesca replaced Juanpi with Gonzalo Melero, whose first act was to get in a header that was straight at Barca keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, and then Juam Camilo Hernandez came on for David Ferreiro.
